 22 February: Focus on fifteens rugby

The focus over the coming few weeks around the country is the build-up to the fifteens club and college rugby seasons around New Zealand. Most club competitions are starting on either 21 and 28 March, depending on how far individual union's obsessions go with professional and representative programmes taking precedence above all else and their need to finish club rugby early. 

Covering rugby from the bottom up: Changes to this page are coming soon, with the national Noticeboard and Story timelines meaning we will have the capacity to publish stories, like we currently do for Wellington and Taranaki, and news in briefs relating to anywhere around New Zealand. If you have news, stories or information please share by emailing editor@clubrugby.co.nz.

16 February: All Blacks Sevens second in Las Vegas

The All Blacks Sevens side has finished second in the Las Vegas leg of the World Rugby Sevens series, losing to Fiji 35-19 in the Cup final.  New Zealand was missing four key players through injury as Fiji led 21-0 at halftime. Ambrose Curtis (2) and Jack Goodhue scored New Zealand’s tries in the final. 

For Fiji, it was their second win of the World Rugby sevens series. South Africa defeated home team USA 31-0 in the playoff for third and fourth. New Zealand had beaten the USA 26-12 in the Cup semi-finals and Fiji defeated South Africa 24-19. 

The top eight points table is now: South Africa 93, New Zealand 88, Fiji 86, Australia 71, England 68, Argentina 54, USA 51, Scotland 47.

New Zealand has won the opening two tournaments of the 2014-15 World Series, in Dubai and Sao Paulo, and is well on track to gaining Olympic qualification. The next tournament is in Atlanta in the USA on 14-15 March, followed by tournaments in Canada, England and the Netherlands.

I have kept a close eye on these young players for some time," said coach Gordon Tietjens. "They were certainly stand-outs at the National Sevens in Rotorua so it’s great to be able to include them in the squad for the first time. 

“I am sure they will be going all out to earn selection for Wellington and Las Vegas.”

After three legs of the HSBC Sevens World Series the All Blacks Sevens are lying third behind Fiji and leaders South Africa. They must finish in the top four in the series to ensure automatic qualification for the Olympics in Rio de Janiero in 2016.

“We are very much looking forward to Wellington as the city really turns it on for all the teams. It’s always very special to play in front of a home crowd as we only play in New Zealand once a year.

“This is also an important tournament for us given our current position in the series. We won here last year so we will be working hard to do our best in front of our fans," said Tietjens.
